BU-7000 Bulk Bottle UnscramblerFeeding and Accumulating Systems

Bottle feeding systems are the method by which bottles are put onto the line whether that be by a large depalletizer, a bulk bottle unscrambler machine, or even something as simple as a rotary feed table.  All accomplish the goal of getting bottles onto the packaging line so that they can be filled, capped, labeled, etc. until we get to the stage where they need to be accumulated for end of line packaging. For most companies this means a rotary accumulating table, where product is cased for shipment. For larger production environments it means moving into other machinery as outlined on our end of line packaging page. The best method for feeding bulk bottles onto a packaging line is with what is known as a bulk bottle unscrambler machine like the one to the right. A bulk bottle unscrambler sorts the random bottles out and stands them upright onto the conveyor. (Plastic or metal Bottles Only!)

Bottle and Can Depalletizing Machine


Bottle depalletizer machines remove one tier at a time from palletized bottles or cans, then remove the separation sheets to allow the next tier to be stripped off the top.  Give us a call to learn more about the best system for your depalletizing needs.

Rotary Feed Table


Rotary Unscrambling Table


Rotary Unscrambling Tables sort round bottles to feed off the table in single file. Rotary feed tables are distinctive from rotary accumulating tables by the distinctive overhead tooling which helps accomplish the task of sorting. All rotary unscramblers have variable speed drives which comes in handy especially if fed bottles need to have separation.

Rotary Feed Table Options:

  • Dump Trays for bottles sent in reshipper cartons.
  • Tray Loaders for Pharmaceutical vials
  • Available in 24", 36", 42", 48" and 60"

Rotary Accumulation Tables


Rotary Accumulation Table


Rotary Accumulators are used to accumulate finished product at the end of the packaging line. Accumulators will work with most any shaped product. An accumulating table is used for packing cartons or trays and allows the operator to do other momentary tasks without interrupting the upstream production. All accumulators are available with variable speed drives and in 24" to 60" diameters.
